Manchester United goalkeeper Joel Pereira loaned to Vitoria de Setubal

Manchester United confirm that goalkeeper Joel Pereira has joined Portuguese club Vitoria de Setubal on a season-long loan.

Manchester United goalkeeper Joel Pereira has joined Portuguese club Vitoria de Setubal on a season-long loan.

The 22-year-old featured in three of United's five pre-season tour games and impressed in the club's penalty shootout win over AC Milan in Pasadena last week.

Pereira was third choice behind David de Gea and Sergio Romero last season, but Lee Grant's summer arrival from Stoke City has led to the Portuguese being shipped out to gain experience.

United have stated that manager Jose Mourinho is a "firm believer" in Pereira, who signed a new contract last year to see him stay at the club until 2021 with the option to extend by a further year.

Manchester United have allowed two goalkeepers to leave the club this summer on a permanent basis, as Sam Johnstone joined West Bromwich Albion earlier this summer for £6.5m, while Dean Henderson moved to Sheffield United.
